Most of you have probably heard by now about the shooting at Virginia Tech today. When I first heard the news, one was dead and 7-8 were injured. I couldn't believe it! The next I heard 22 were dead and about the same number were injured. As of right now 33 are dead (supposedly including the gunman). After I heard the news I was talking to the mom about what had happened, and she made a good point: "If nothing else, I hope this causes college campuses to improve their alarms and safety drills." This is all so sad. We have plenty of evil and violence in the world around us, we don't need to be attacking within our own country. How can we help others when we haven't helped ourselves?
